Our pleasure to be invited to a press and bloggers Iftar at the all-day dining Liwan restaurant in Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana.

It's my first time in Liwan and I'm impressed with its immersive ambiance. Every corner tells a story. Arabic table mats, wooden camel figures, carts & pails of traditional dried fruits & nuts, exotic tea pots and colorfully glowing Arabic lanterns welcome guests to the lavish Iftar.  Some staff are dressed in traditional Arabic outfits as well.  The live Arabic musical entertainment completes the feel of Ramadan.


It always feels good to dine at Rotana. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. This funny guy below not just serve, but gives you trivia about the Arabic coffee he serves.


The buffet features a selection of Arabic, international and traditional Ramadan specialties.  I'm not really a huge fan of Arabic cuisine but what I've got on my plate was really delightful enough. Food is good!


There's a cold mezze counter, a South Asian corner, Tandoori, fresh veggies, servings of maki rolls, and of course, a Shawarma Station among others.


The theme was more like of Pan-Arabian delicacies.


I was late to snap a full table of the desserts. But there are fruits, cuts of cakes, mousse and wide range of traditional Arabic sweets and dates which you can dip and top with different dressings.


Another good thing about Liwan is their Kids Corner. For families with toddlers like us, you can somehow relax while watching your kid play safe at the area. There's also food for the playfuls there - chicken nuggets, hash browns and stir-fried noodles. There's also a kiddie kit for every little one with coloring materials in it.  You won't see many hotel restaurants this family-friendly.



The Iftar buffet costs AED 149 per person.  They also serve Suhour starting from AED 100.  Guests will get a chance to win daily with weekend stays and meal vouchers, or win the grand prize of 2 business class trips to Istanbul with Turkish Airlines.

Thanks for the invite and for this Insta-selfie Ferry.
